International Day of Happiness

Today was the UN’s International Day of Happiness. A day for remembering that happiness is not about accumulation of wealth and goods but about the day to day experiences of community,¬†security, nature, and the simple pleasures of life.

The UN launched a big social media campaign to raise awareness to make happiness a global priority and to reframe economic growth in a way that is inclusive of citizens’ happiness and well-being.

I was all over it on my yoga facebook and twitter pages, posting pictures of things that make me happy to remind me of all the great things that are going on in the world (counteracting stories like this and this).

  • Aww I missed it yesterday, but I’m glad you posted about it – it’s always nice to get a reminder to think about the things that make us happy and grateful :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  • It’s SO true that money and stuff doesn’t cause happiness! Life really is about the simple things…
